I wanted to share an update on the fall colors I saw while driving along the Foothills Parkway this past Sunday, and also on the amazing change in one of the sugar maples here at the Sidecar Inn. The above photo is from a stop I made at one of the overlooks on the Foothills Parkway.

As the elevation increased so did the intensity and variety in the colors

Earlier in the day I had noticed one of the sugar maples, along Old Red Lane, had more color seemingly overnight!

More reds, oranges, and yellows versus just a day ago!

I hope you have enjoyed this quick update on the fall colors here at the Sidecar Inn, and along the Foothills Parkway. I’d be happy to suggest other places to see the fall colors!
